Colour psychology is the science of how colour affects human behaviour and how it can have a powerful psychological impact on people’s decisions. For the next couple of weeks we’re exploring the topic of psychology in colour. Here’s this week’s article:

At the beginning of February we announced that we were working on a website re-design for our client, Live Splendidly!  We’ve been hard at it for the past few weeks and the website’s now launched and live! Our client is super pleased with the outcome, thinks it’s a great looking and functional site, and is really proud of it. That makes it all worth it ; )

The Most Popular Web Design Trends for 2017

Websites can age with time as trends come and go. We’ve kicked off  2017 the same way as last year — busy creating new design concepts for small businesses simply because it is time to refresh their outdated websites. While currently a work in progress, here’s a peek at the Home page of the old site and the Home page of the re-design for LiveSplendidly! Visit our blog or Facebook page again soon for a look at the completed version of the site.

If you have an idea or concept to freshen up your website, get in touch. We can help you!



We can never forget that it’s the content on a website that is critical to its success. It is still king when it comes to search engines, but even more importantly, it’s real people who are reading the content!

We are very excited to have launched another brand new website for one of our clients. Our most recent client, Bock Interiors, has been in business for many years without a website, but recently decided that he’d like to have a presence on the net. The owner’s request was to primarily have his website give an overview of his business with a few key support pages, i.e., services, about us, a quote form, an image gallery and a contact page.

In addition, our client requested that his site be easy to navigate, quick and functional, ready to go live within a couple of weeks, and within his very limited budget. We’re happy to announce that Bock Interiors is now officially launched!
